     Comments     : The  TRIPLEX-Virus  allocates 2048 bytes chipmem and
                    copies it self into this area.  To stay resident the
                    virus changes the CoolCapture-Vector. After the next
                    restet the virus patches the DoIO()-Vector, too.
                    If you want to see the bootblock of an infected disk
                    the virus always shows you a normal Kickstart 1.3 BB
                    This routine is also used in the LAMER-Viruses.

     Removal      : Kickstart 1.2 & 1.3 : VT-Schutz v3.17
                    Kickstart all others: VirusZ III, and also Xvs.library must be installed
